The Birth of Earth
The painted skies of sunrise to sunset
speak of passion within the Artist’s hand
The embroidered flower gardens and fields
tell of order and not haphazard plans
The sculptured mountains too magnificent
to be the humble work of chance
Oceans, rivers, creeks all run to proclaim
that they’ve been created to laugh and dance
The creatures move upon the earth and sky
to care for young that they’ve produced in pairs
While trees reach up as if to offer praise
and grow to anchor beneath the ground with care
And so the story of our beginning
continues to be narrated across this earth
While sun, moon, and stars echo the words
Our existence is not by chance–but by birth.

For since the creation of the world
God’s invisible qualities–his eternal power
and divine nature–have been clearly seen,
being understood from what has been made,
so that men are without excuse.
In May this blog turned two years old.
I’ve shared a lot of pictures and poems in that time.
The pictures I share with you are usually the result
of having experimented with different angles and lighting.
My favorite lighting is early morning or late afternoon.
If it’s particularly bright out I purposely take pictures of flowers
in dappled light (especially white ones).
My favorite place to take pictures is in my own garden.
This is because I can run into the house and grab my kneeling pad
for close to the ground shots.
I can unabashedly contort myself into the oddest corners
and positions with only my family to occasionally catch me;
but they are used to me and don’t even bat an eye.
I take lots of pictures of each subject.
The more time I spend–the more I experiment.
Often it’s the shot that was taken later in the shoot that becomes my favorite.
I’ve learned that it’s not about the kind of camera you own…
it’s the passion behind it that counts the most.
That’s true for so many things in life.
